Windows 10: Network frustration - desktop cannot access laptop

    Network frustration - desktop cannot access laptop

    I have a desktop and laptop on the same home network, both part of the same workgroup. No homegroup. On the desktop, in File Explorer, I can see the laptop but cannot access it. I ran Network troubleshooter and have attached the log file. I have no idea if it is helpful.
    On my laptop, my desktop cannot be seen in File explorer.
    I have checked the obvious things like Network discovery is on, File and printer sharing is on, plus a few other things. I have restarted both computers, as well as my modem and router.
    Any help will be appreciated
